    Playback problem

    Buckeye101

      I have a Canon HG21 camcorder.  I've just burned my first DVD after some light editing with APE7.  Although the Panasonic DVD player indicates that it supports all types of disks (DVD-R, DVD - RW, etc) it tells me the disk is not formatted correctly.  I reformatted the disk & re-burned the file with the same result.  Any suggestions ??

          Yes, APE7 = Adobe Premiere Elements 7.

            You say your DVD burner will work with DVD-R and DVD-RW -- but you're not using DVD+Rs, are you?

             

            If you're getting these types of messages, it's not related to Premiere Elements. It's something going on between your burner and your DVD media.

              What exact type of media, and also the brand, are you using here?

               

              For some players, the "+" and "-" can make a difference. Newer players do not seem as prone to those differences, but they do still exist.

               

              Does your burned disc play on your computer through a DVD software player?

               

              Good luck,

                OK.  I'm recording to a Memorex DVD+RW  4x 4.7 GB 120 min.  My Panasonic DVD player says that it supports that media - as well as DVD-RW, etc.  I can play the DVD back through the computer - just not through the DVD player.

                 

                Something else that I can't figure out, I have no sound when I am editing.  I do have sound when playing back the DVD through the computer.  (sorry for adding to the issues - I appreciate the help)  The computer is new - I did have sound when editing with my other computer.

                  Since this disc plays elsewhere, it is likely an incompatibility with the set-top player and that media.

                   

                  Memorex is about the worst possible brand choice. They buy in bulk from the lowest bidder, and there may be a couple of different media in a 10 disc. spindle.

                   

                  I am a big fan of Verbatim and Taiyo Yuden media.

                   

                  Also, realize that no set-top player is required to play ANY burned disc. Most do, if burned properly, but many will not play any burned disc.

                   

                  I also use +RW media, but only as a test, to keep from burning "coasters." I never use any rewritable for delivery. To date, I've never had an issue with any of my test players not playing a Verbatim RW disc. In your case, you might want to do a test burn to a non-rewritable disc, and test that with your set-top player.

                   

                  Good luck,
